As the guide says it is a book that covers a vast areas of climbing, so it cannot be expected to cover all of these areas in great detail, especially the areas that have yet to be developed. It is for one of these undeveloped areas that my brother and I used it as a guide. The guide contained all the best climbs in Kerry (The gap of dunloe) although in terms of distances to things, pictures of where the lines go and maps of the area it could perhaps be improved.

With this in mind the guide made us aware of and helped us navigate around one of the most incredible areas to climb.
